What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Splurge-Worthy Goodness: Blackberry Jam ‘n Bourbon Milkshake! Grownups have all the fun, especially when it comes to boozy milkshakes. Every so often, alcohol plus ice cream equals a dessert worth noting. This particular concoction brings out the natural fruitiness of fresh blackberries when mixed with bourbon’s rich brown sugar flavor. Vanilla bean serves as an enhancement among the silky smooth ice cream. To keep from slugging it back like a jigger shot, use a paper straw for sipping. After all, there’s nothing worse than a triple-whammy alcoholic brain freeze. Drink responsibly. For Adults Only.
